I started to become weak when I was 8. I started to become weak when I was 14. I started to become weak when I was 26. I started to become weak when I turned 35. Charcot Marie Tooth is a disease that affects all ages. Younger adults deal with the weakening of their muscles as time progresses. This may force them to wear braces on their legs to aid them in walking or they will get surgery to become more mobile. 1 in 2500 people in the US suffer from this disease and it doesn’t help anyone by just staring at their weak muscles. Donate to the Charcot Marie Tooth Association today to help fund the research needed to cure this genetic disease. Don’t stare, be aware.

A boy walks around in braces, people look at him. Child 1 speaks:

“What is he wearing?”

They continue to stare. Child 2 speaks:

“I dunno, he’s like a robot”

The boy notices them. Child 3 speaks:

“I bet he’s like the terminator”

The boy is sad that they are so weirded out by him. Child 1 speaks:

“I think he noticed us”
